“99.9% of people are good”

 

In this episode we speak with Sydney native Tim Fung, Founder and CEO of AirTasker - the online community for with over 1.5 million users!

 

Airtasker was borne out of a very real frustration Tim had when moving house. He needed assistance with smaller jobs but no marketplace existed - so he did what any natural entrepreneur should do and built one!

 

Tim has gained a mass of experience over the years, including working in Finance, being involved with other startups, and even “looking after Victoria’s Secret’s models”!

 

Tim and Airtasker have raised a huge $32million in funding and are now expanding into the UK after great success in Australia. 

 

In the ever expanding market of the “gig economy” apps like AirTasker play an important role in allowing people to outsource small tasks, and allow people to find quick jobs.

 

In this episode we talk about:

 

  • Fundraising

  • The gig economy

  • PR and marketing

  • Virality and user acquisition 

  • The Network effect

  • Working with a co-founder 

  • And as always, plenty more...
